She was predeceased by her first husband Constable Andrew Ronald Thibeau, RCMP; sister Joan Burry (Frank); brothers John Picco (Louise); Gordon Picco (Dorothy); Harold Picco; Gregory Picco; Nathan Picco all of Newfoundland.
Rose was a quiet person that always put her family, friends, pets and animals first. She was known for looking after any stray cats or dogs that showed up at the house, and in many cases taking them in. Rose’s house was the local treat stop for any dog out for a walk that needed a little treat or a drink of water. Rose could always be seen some time during the day out for a drive with Dennis and little Miss Daisy; looking for a deer, partridge, rabbit or anything moving. She loved nature and did her part to take care of God’s little creatures.
In her spare time she liked doing puzzles with family, going for drives and she enjoyed Michelle’s omelets. Christmas was an important season for Rose and she always wanted to make sure everyone knew how much she appreciated them throughout the year.
In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Sunday January 17th at Green’s Funeral Home, 507 Bernard St., Port Hawkesbury from 2:00pm-9:00pm.
